During one week in September, Square Enix Montréal ran its inaugural ‘Square Jam’ – an event where all the studio members assembled into small teams to create a game of their choice focused around the theme of ‘exposed’.
Following a week of intense productivity and fun, the teams submitted a variety of prototype games that reflected Square Enix Montréal’s creative spirit, including projectile reflecting witchery in Aegis; using a mobile phone in the corporate afterlife of Fate, Incorporated; hunting space hunters online in Space Hunter Hunt; and the camera-wielding private detective of Overexposed‘s hotel complex.
Whilst there are no current plans to formally release any of these titles you can watch a short video of these concepts.
